pcspecialist.co.uk - are they any good?


Well-known Member
Hi folks,

I realise there's probably countless posts on here about pcspecialist.co.uk but what I am more interested in is the screen quality. How good is the full HD screen they provide? Is the keyboard good? Is it backlit?

The reason I ask is because I'm honestly a little fed up trying to find a laptop with a decent screen. I currently have a Dell XPS 14 laptop which has a 1600x900 display but it is very disappointing. I'm having to return it anyway because of awful WiFi problems.

I am looking to spend around £800 on preferably an ultrabook with an IPS display and descrete graphics. These particular laptops seem very few and far between.

The reason I am interested in pcspecialist is because price wise they seem to be very competitive.

For information just visit the PC Specialist website and check out the various laptops and spec variations for each one.

Their screens tend to be full HD and you have the choice of matte or gloss screen. Some laptops have an additional choice of a high quality screen should you so wish.

There is also a PC Specialist forum which you can peruse.

I have a new 17-inch Vortex III and the screen is superb. The keyboard is also back-lit.

Not exactly scientific

I am also looking for a laptop with a good screen, the reviews a have read suggest a Sony vaio s has a good ips screen.

Do you mind saying what was wrong with the Dell xps, i have been tempted by one of those. Thanks
